Thoughts on current events


I’ve been wondering this for a long time…Is George Bush still in office?  I seem to hear his name mentioned almost every day on the news.  It seems like he’s still running the country…

Look, Mr. President, regardless of the hand you were dealt, you have to deal with it.  And since it’s apparent that you can’t, we believe it’s time to force you out of the poker game.  At the rate you’re going, that’s how we’re going to deal with it.

Regarding Afghanistan, why, since we got Bin Laden, haven’t we pulled out?  What are we doing there???  Regardless of how we got there or why, we have no reason to continue being there.  Get our people out!

Above all, my readers, be sure to always remember that God is in control.  The prophet Hosea, from the Divine Office yesterday:

Thus says the Lord:
Return, O Israel, to the Lord, your God;
you have collapsed through your guilt.
Take with you words,
and return to the Lord;
Say to him, “Forgive all iniquity,
and receive what is good, that we may render
as offerings the bullocks from our stalls.
Assyria will not save us,
nor shall we have horses to mount;
We shall say no more, ‘Our god,’
to the work of our hands;
for in you the orphan finds compassion.”

I will heal their defection,
I will love them freely;
for my wrath is turned away from them.
I will be like the dew for Israel:
he shall blossom like the lily;
He shall strike root like the Lebanon cedar,
and put forth his shoots.
His splendor shall be like the olive tree
and his fragrance like the Lebanon cedar.
Again they shall dwell in his shade
and raise grain;
They shall blossom like the vine,
and his fame shall be like the wine of Lebanon.

Ephraim! What more has he to do with idols?
I have humbled him, but I will prosper him.
“I am like a verdant cypress tree”—
Because of me you bear fruit!

Let him who is wise understand these things;
let him who is prudent know them.
Straight are the paths of the Lord,
in them the just walk,
but sinners stumble in them.
